Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

The US's first possible POTUS candidate from the MILF Party (THIS JUST IN: Make that the GILF party) has announced that she will *not* run for President in 2012. .... Politics, shmolitcs! Just having some eye candy around was worth it -- and no, Mitt Romney doesn't count, at least for Your Humble Servant. ;-D

Sequel to the December 2008 "tribute" to Dubya's departure, "Bush, We Will Miss" ... Syllable-matched to this OS video. Heartbroken TT's previous TribuTes to the Goddess of the TT-Party linked herein. (Be a sport. Click 'em! ;)

Darn, she's gone away! Would I --
-- Forsooth, plumb her!
Palin, her bum, I would kiss
So tender is my love
Ev'ry way: like to bed her
Sar-ah, I'll miss

Though Obama was so bold,
Turned out: bummer
What pile: bills! I'm em- -ployless!
Paul, Cain, Newt, 'Chele, Mitt (gleams),
Perry, -- say they'll do better;
Feel, me, no bliss

She "sails" in- -to the spotlight
A "Right-eous" voice "unchained" there   [1]
I want to, Governor, "roll" you
But Palin, scr*w? No! Thin air!

I so wanna' take a ride
On this Hummer™   [2]
Oh, how I love this Miss
Though MS-N' may hedge:
Deceit, I remember   [3]
And feel a great abyss

[instrumental, played by TT on his organ]

Bush--Joe Biden? Be all, told:
Joe is dumber
But I trill of beaut'eousness:   [4]
Upend them all, my love!
Each debate would be better
Field went amiss

[Feeling his bris]
[He'll reminisce]

[1] Yes, it's a pun: the parody there was of a, uh, "rather famous" Righteous Brothers hit. See what ya missed by not clickin'? ;-D

[2] It's a brand of vehicle, and while TT has heard rumors that the word also has a colloquial meaning, he wouldn't know anything about that. ;)

MS-NBC, nicknamed "The Obama Channel", as their reporters and achorpersons repeatedly *wore Obama campaign butttons* ON THE AIR, while "reporting" news, interviewing voters, etc. ....

Hey, TT doesn't care how you feel about Barack Obama, Sarah Palin, or George Washington. They "hedged" --- "avoid or try to avoid fulfilling, answering, or performing (duties, questions, or issues)" on their duty at least to wear impartial clothing, and on responding to questions about proper "news" "reporting". Talk about "lack of credibility" --- who were they to impugn hers, McCain's, or anyone else's, for that matter?

(Yes, Fox leans the other way. But they didn't wear campaign buttons while "reporting".)

[4] Not to be confused with "booty-ousness", but there was plenty of that, too. xD

Heartbroken, yes, but -- Que Saráh, Saráh, eh?

What TT's been doing instead of parody: Was one of a few invited to preview the pre-publication draft of a new book on the philosophy underlying security of all kinds, by a world-renowned expert in the field: computer/electronic as well as physical. Quite an honor. Still, it got the usual veTTing. The difference: Unlike (cough) one or two writers here (cough), *this* expert was grateful for all constructive criticism, from typos and grammar to flat-out challenges of questionable or unsupported statements, even if disagreeing with the critique. (Maybe that's how one becomes an expert in the first place? -- just sayin'.)

Of course, the first draft arrived the day before TT's (and FG's) last two parodies were posted, clashing with the last-minute polishing of same. Still, sent the comments, got a second draft a while ago, sent comments, and am awaiting third (and hope, final) draft. So the "break" coincided nicely with the announcement from The Divine Sarah. ;) ... which probably means v3.0 will arrive today. ... but either way, *will* reply to all parody comments, even if very late, or tomorrow. Apologies if unable to read others' songs.

Oh, and Tommy decided to let his transcriber (moi) take credit in the book's "Acknowledgments" page. The author had asked, "In the acknowledgments, do I thank 'Tommy Turtle'?" (true) We all know how modest Tommy is, and besides, it might seem, uh, "strange" for the author of a scholarly book, who probably has an IQ somewhere around Stephen Hawking's, to be seen taking advice from an amphibious reptile with a brain the size of a pea.

Sarah Palin's announcement was made after "much prayer and serious consideration". Was that on her part or that of the Republican establishment? It's still a long way to November 2012, when America will decide who will be playing the President on "Saturday Night Live". I guess Tina Fey is out. What you would like to do to Sarah, Obama has been doing to the whole country for the past three years. When the work of the nation requires concentration, he'll focus.

TT - Sounds like you have a bad case of "Sarah Burn-Heart". To lessen the symptoms, may I suggest (ala Brian Hyland) an itsy-bitsy teeny-weeny Grey Goose with a twist martini? It's a relief to see that your powers are undiminished. I am in a curiously unproductive stage at present, but Hope (and Crosby) springs eternal. Keep sending us more when you are able to find the time. ;D

Do you think she wants to go back to her little igloo in whatchamacallit Alaska? I don't think so.

I can see fives from my house! Fun one, TT----am wonderin' if you'll be YouTubin' your organ solo anytime soon?! And congrats on your more academic endeavors, where interest is high and you don't have to short-sale your soul!

Such a sweet Sarah-nade. [Hard-shelled, indeed! ] ........... LOL @ OMR's puns :)

Don't despair, TT. She's not running for President, but she hasn't exactly "gone away." She will be all around the country making speeches, maybe even in the state of Turtle-onia.

Good job of coming up with rhymes for summer, particularly the accurate observation that "Joe is dumber."

Sarah Palin is such an attention whore. Has anyone noticed that Steve Jobs stole her thunder this time around? Yes, he died of cancer and that is a very sad news flash item : ( but she just LOVES being in the limelight and making her cult devotees eagerly wait for her new "divination" and she's been upstaged by a news report concerning somebody with a brain! Shoot! Rats! Awww sh*t! ; ) Slimed again!

Patrick: According to Jay Leno, it was the most crushing blow to Obama's re-election hopes yet... Woody Allen told that same joke in "Annie Hall" some 44 years ago, but it still fits, and it's still funny. ... Kinda' thought the work of the nation has required concentration at least since O's inauguration, but still waiting for that focus -- or did you mean, Focus, as in Ford? Thanks for v/c.

Old Man Ribber: Almost afraid to see what your comments would be like in a "productive" stage! ;D LOL @ all -- no diminishing of Comment Super-powers there, my friend! .... Hope and Crosby worked out much better than Hope and Change, didn't they? ... now, if only they'd make another "road" pic: "Obama: On The Road (back) To Illinois". (sell it to the studios.) Thanks for v/c, and for the catch to "The Divine" in the outro - your 94/7% just went up! :D

alvin: aw, gosh, ya big lug!... thanks!

2Eagle: Nope, not any more than TT expected 2E to stay in the little whatever in Burbank instead of jumping (so to speak) on that point. Thanks for "being there" for moi -- yep, she'll still be grabbin' them headlines. (I only look at the pictures.)

Ewephonia Pumpem: LOL @ "fives"! ... not much of a YouTuber myself (prefer Ewe Tube), but I know someone who might put it up there for me -- will see if there's any, uh, "interest". It *will* be nice to be associated with something that draws more than single-digit readers (lol). Thanks for v/c!

Al Askin-Cruz: ROFL @ "Sarah-nade" -- wishing "Sarah-made" (or, if TT were Ahnold, "Sarah-maid" -- hey, this stuff *kills* 'em in Sacramento!) ... and echo @ OMR. Thanks for v/c!

John Jenkins: As per reply to 2Eagle, yes, definitely. And such a visit could move TT to the state of Ecstasy (not the drug). Thanks for v/c and for kind words on rhymes. ... Question: Does Biden stay on the ticket in 2012? Offer his resignation voluntarily? Or is he there to make O look smarter by comparison? (At least, until he made that speech that admitted that he and O "now own the economy". Honest, obvious, but I'd like to have been a fly on the wall of the Obal Office when the Pres heard it.)

Sick Sick Sick: Sorry that we cross-posted, and I missed your post.           Do you think that Ms. Palin knew the exact hour when Mr. Jobs would meet his fate, and planned it deliberately?

I mourn the loss of an incredibly creative individual, as we all do, but it really seems a stretch to connect the two. Gov. Chris Christie of NJ made the same not-running announcement a day or two earlier. Mr. Jobs' long-running illness was well known. If Jobs had passed away a day earlier, then I guess Christie's announcement was a plot to disrespect Job's memory?

The point of the parody was the author's personal, uh, "attraction" to the subject, and it's unfortunate that that self-mocking humor was missed. Thanks for stopping by and sharing your opinion, as all are welcome to do.

A well crafted parody that makes other parodies about Palin pale in comparison (I bet that one’s been used before!) I liked her best when she was in that film about Monte Cristo’s search for the Holy Grail. She did a good job as leader of The Knights Who Say Ni. She so wanted a shrubbery in that film, but I bet she’d now rather have a burning Bush. One last thought: she was an exceptionally tall knight with a beard in that film – oh dear, I’m getting a little worried about you now! ;)

Nobody could've predicted when Steve Jobs would meet his maker. Sarah couldn't plan that, no way. I'm just implying that she had the press attention (once again) waiting for her next "pronouncement" and she can't bask in the limelight now because of Steve Job's passing away. I remember when the Apple computer debuted on the market. Steve Jobs helped spark a revolution in technology and sciences. They made history. Sarah Palin was trying to extend her famous 15 again but the moment was spoiled. There's the irony. R.I.P. Steve Jobs - you made a major impact on history and you are one real super trouper.

Norman Zavlandid: Naah, it's not been used before, not more than a dozen or so times, anyway. ;D .... Old TT saying: "Never go for the obvious." ;)
          Tall knight with a beard? Now I'm a little worried about *you* lol. ... Actually, kinda' surprised that you wouldn't be an ardent supporter of her, what with her being the former Duchess of York, and her children being heirs to the Throne of of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, even despite the subsequent divorce from Prince Hamlet. Thanks for v/c.

Sick Sick Sick: Being a politician or public figure thereof pretty much implies grabbing all the publicity you can, and that applies to all from all parties -- she's no better or no worse than anyone else in that regard.
          Will be proud. to join you there: R.I.P Steve Jobs, a true American innovator. Thanks for the return visit.
